Around 45 percent of Spanish broadband users had active connections of 30 Mbps and over at the end of the first quarter, according to a report by Spain's communications regulator CNMC. The number of users subscribing to Next-Generation Access (NGA) networks soared by 83 percent year on year, driven by fibre-optic network expansion. Total NGA coverage reached 35.2 million homes at the end of Q1, up 27.7 percent year on year, some 24.4 million of them corresponding to FTTH technology.
